We take Ted and Laurie out for a quick walk up the lochside and come back over Craigie Fort.

AFTER breakfast I prepare the smoker for later then jump int he car and head to Glasgow airport to pick up our pals Ted and Laurie who are over from  Nashville and staying with us for a few days.

Their flight is early and the timing works out perfectly…I’ve only just got to arrivals when they come through.

Margaret’s got lunch ready so after a wee rest we eat then go for a wee walk, stopping in to see Betty and Joe for a coffee.

Back home, the pork is ready on the smoker then our pals Sheena and Paul drop in with their daughters Elsie and Annie. Lovely to see them.

We have an early dinner then make our way to the village hall for Maureen’s 60th birthday party…a ceilidh, with a great band, and a baptism of fire from our American pals 🙂
